Moving to another site :,(

Hey there friends!

I just want to thank all of you for being awesome and visiting my blogspot! Because of you guys, I now know someone out there in the real world actually likes my stuff! I am extremely thankful for the amount of support and fans I've gained since I've started posting my art publicly. Unfortunately I will no longer post my work here on blogspot but I will be posting new works to my art tumblr from now on. What's even more exciting is that I will be working on animations this year as well!! So be on the lookout for those!

I also have a new website for portfolio purposes at if you want to check that out as well.

Thanks guys! It's been fun. And I will be seeing you at Tumblr!

Summer bummer sketches

While I was taking summer courses and fighting depression, I used up 2/3 of my sketchbook filled with stuff I drew so far during my summer vacation! Unfortunately it's filled with concept drawings for recent projects (working on character designs for Kail's upcoming animation and a creepy comic for The House of 7 Heads). So I can't really show you anything just yet. I do have other sketchies to show yalls:

concepts for monster design line or something. tba soonz

And if you ever were curious about my thumbnails/concept process (haha):

Also some news: 

So to those of you who follow my tumblr, I announced back in May that I was starting a webcomic called Theatre Bizarre. Unfortunately, due to working on the two major projects and taking classes, I'm planning to postpone it until the fall. It'll give me time to work on the storyline a bit more since I didn't feel comfortable posting a comic with half assed storyline.

So far the concept of the story is about an female explorer named Alex whose spaceship crashes onto a deserted planet, and finds a mysterious old theatre. As she enters the theatre, she finds herself trapped and meets others in the same situation. Together, they must get along and try to find ways to escape. Unfortunately for them, finding the exit isn't quite easy; there are about a thousand theatre doors that lead to some trouble or another (some lead to another dimensions, while others lead to a plain old theatre room. They never know what to expect from these rooms). 

Our main characters Alexandria (Alex), her brother simon, and their new friend Seek (a rejected Seek doodle right above him)

The whole point of Theatre Bizarre is treating it like it's a show, every "episode" or chapter is an adventure our main characters must take in a different theatre rooms. It's gunna be great. I'm already seeing the episodes playing in my head. I must admit that watching Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Twilight Zone over the years will definitely influence the series.

ok. going back to work now. byez.

Fan Art Friday


(quick doodle of cool guys Rigby & Mordecai from Regular Show!)

Also! I've been trying to read more comics lately and  fortunately I came across a really wonderful manga called Fuan No Tane (Seeds of Anxiety). It's a collection of short and surreal horror stories by Nakayama Masaaki that has inspired me to make a collection of the same nature as well (I'd probably leave that project for the summer). 

It's a fun read and not for the faint hearted. I think it's actually affected me on some psychological level already (as I write all this down I keep feeling someone is standing behind me. creepy!)

I'm actually really excited for the end results! However, they still need to be uber changed and edited, so I'm just going to show off some bits of it!

PACC Review

So over the weekend with my good pal Moony, I ventured out to South Philly to attend Philadelphia's Alternative Comic Con. I didn't know what to expect from Philly, considering it was my first time in that city. But I must say, this city of brotherly love was truly beautiful.
The center/city's architecture was so pretty (not to mention clean, well, cleaner than nyc) and the people were friendly (we even got free museum coupons from a lovely old couple on the bus!). Rumor has it rent in Philly is super cheap compared to smelly ole NYC, which means I may move there in the near future! hint hint.

On Saturday, we arrived at Cha Cha Razzi (an art studio occupied by the convention's very own host, Pat Ausilio) to attend the awards ceremony, Grawlix . There, we were reunited with old friends and even made new ones accompanied by cheap booze and live music.

On Sunday! Was the actual con, located in the Rotunda. It was way smaller than NY Comic Con and MoCCA, but damn it, whatta show! Being an alternative con and all, there weren't any signs of cosplayers (thank god)  but instead some good ole punk music in the background (there was even a DJ, Snaaaazzy!) and awesome artists!

Aside from fooling around at our table

(the folks across from our table had the most delicious looking cookies on Earth and Moony's drawing got us free ones! Thanks Moony!)

we sold a bunch of comics as well as monster portraits :

And the comics we got!
1) Love Pile
                        and Upset Cats Vol.1 by Ze San San 

[Ze is currently a RISD alumni, and her work, oh lord I just want to make sweet love to it. It's so fucking amazing, cute and most importantly, weird. Like her RISD peers, her art has that scratchy nib quality in addition to a great amount of details and sexual content, making it beautifully obscure.  Please go see her work.]

2)  Earl The Girl by Dominique Martin

[ Recent SVA alumni, Dominique presents a silly story about a girl named Earl, her dog Dog Dog, and her cat Cat Cat. Earl, having broken up with Dog Dog, meets up and falls in love with a guy with a vagina back (explaining that it's a "Phantom Taint"). 
And with that folks, I'm hooked. The story is adorable, and I'm totally digging the Kaz/Gary Baseman-esque. Can't wait til issue 2! ]

3) Ghost Comics
[An anthology of ghost stories and the pas haunting the present. 
 It includes artists such as Jeffrey Brown, Ed Choy Moorman, Corinne Mucha, Zak Sally, Toby Jones, and much more. A must read!)

4) Counter Attack #1 by Alisa Harris

[ahhhhhhh cute cats in cute scenarios. What is there not to like??
I've never owned a cat thus this comic was definitely a huge help in understanding cats. It's well drawn and made me laugh for minutes.  Please go check her stuff!)

 5) Puppy Teeth
[ warning: this minicomic contains extremely talented folks, thus will make you hate yourself. 
I've read this whole booklet like three times already. Good doesn't even describe it. 
Please do me a favor and check out these artists, IT'S IMPORTANTE:
-Martinez E Garcias

All very lovely stories!!
Plus, I got the chance to meet and befriend the amazing Kevin Czapiewski, who so happened to be my twitter buddy already (I didn't realize it until he brought it up! What a small world. haha).
Oh! and he made a cute lil drawing in the minicomic.
Chick looks familiar!

And talented friends who are the reason why I continue on living and loving comics:

(go read his webcomic, Imaginary Monsters!! 
p.s. this mofo= huge inspiration)
(His shirts are super rad and his photography is envy worthy)
(his crazy style is crazy. crazy good. Go die Josh)
(Watercolor master and a lady's man. Watch out world!)
(Remember his name, face and art. Your life will depend on it sooner or later)

THUS, it was definitely one of the best times I've had EVER at a con, and I must thank Pat for having the ability and patience to run this awesome con. Your hardwork is praised my friend.

And with that, 
I hope you find inspiration in these folks.

see ya!
